AI is transforming many aspects of society, but adoption has been slow in healthcare. The COVID-19 pandemic presented a wide array of challenges and an urgent need for rapid response, which accelerated the development and adoption of AI in the medical domain. This has led to the creation of new tools and methods as well as elevated the need for partnerships between healthcare providers and AI researchers across academia and industry. It has also accelerated interest within the AI research community in applying AI technologies to tackle the unique challenges posed by the medical domain. As a result, the creation of large novel datasets and new technologies has proceeded at an unprecedented pace. This session will focus on lessons learned from the accelerated development and deployment of AI technologies in healthcare in response to some of the urgent needs and challenges and posed by the pandemic which may form the basis of a “new normal” for AI in the medical domain.
